Kim Kardashian is once again in the hot seat for appropriation.
After the release of the ulta sexy Skims ad featuring her sister Kourtney Kardashian and pal Megan Fox, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has been called out by a former friend for recreating images done by black women.
Jewelry designer Kristen Noel Crawley took to Instagram stories in a now deleted post that featured photos of Draya Michele and fellow model Tanaya Henry that very much resemble the headline making ad for Kardashian's shapewear line.
"Black women are always the blueprint, and don't you forget it," Crawley wrote as she even tagged both of the models featured in the photo. According to Radar, Draya did repost the picture with the statement but then later took it down.
Kardashian has gotten herself into some cultural squabbles in the past. Back in 2019, she was slammed after she originally named her undergarment line, Kimono. Fans called the reality star out for attempting to cash in on Japanese culture for a brand that had nothing to do with Asian country's traditional piece of clothing.
The popular tv personality was also called out when she was featured in a photo shoot promoting KKW Beauty contour and highlight kits, for making herself appear too dark.
But not all is in peril in the fashion mogul's life at the moment. It was officially announced on Wednesday, September 22, that Kardashian will make her hosting debut on Saturday Night Live on October 9.
As OK! was the first to report back in August, the "Jam" singer was seen meeting up with Lorne Michaels. A source spilled, “Lorne Michaels was recently spotted at the Beverly Hills Hotel deep in discussions with Kim, and her momager-manager, Kris [Jenner]. Lorne wants her to do the show.”
